  • Humility Is The Key

    Contributed by Rev. Matthew Parker on Oct 23, 2016

    Humility - October 23, 2016 - Luke 18:9-14 Worship. Worship. There is nothing like worshipping God. There’s nothing like being in the presence of Jesus and adoring Him. And that’s because there is nothing and no one more beautiful than our God. Father, Son, Holy Spirit, God who more

  • The Great Catholic Et Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jul 17, 2016

    whenever Catholic theology gives an answer, it usually has the word “et” in it. There is always an add-on, an essential “and.”

    Tenth Sunday After Pentecost 2016 The parable usually called “the Pharisee and the Publican” could just as easily be called “Self-delusion and self-understanding.” But let’s understand that Jesus told this parable to Pharisees, who trusted in themselves that they more

  • The Good, The Bad, & The Snuggly

    Contributed by Jonathan Meyer on Nov 1, 2016
    based on 4 ratings

    Jesus points to our salvation by the Father's grace alone, not by our works--first through a parable, and then in action as He welcomes children (even infants).

    The Word of God that engages us today is our Gospel reading from Luke 18. And in our Gospel reading, Jesus challenges the presuppositions of those around Him. Our Gospel reading is really broken down into two sections—and quite often you’ll get a sermon on one or the other, as if more

  • The Missing Ingredient Series

    Contributed by Reverend Cooper Mcwhirter on Oct 1, 2016

    “There’s nothing wrong with me” can be a very dangerous thing to say.

    Sermon Preached at Grace Community Church (EPC) Sun City Grand, Surprise, AZ Sunday, February 21, 2010 by the Reverend Cooper McWhirter "In a Manner of Speaking": The Parable of 'The Pharisee and the Publican' Luke 18:9-14 The following account is based on a true story. more

  • The Parable Of The Prayers Series

    Contributed by Dennis Davidson on Nov 10, 2014
    based on 6 ratings

    The focus is humility in prayer out of a realization that righteousness can not be reached by means of our own efforts. Prayers are heard & answered because of God's mercy not because of our self-justifying merits.

    LUKE 18: 9-14 [PARABLES IN LUKE] THE PARABLE OF THE PRAYERS [Luke 11:39-11;54] In this section Jesus tells a story of a Pharisee and a tax collector. Both were sincere and devout. As a matter of fact, one kept the law scrupulously, or thought he did. The other was in a profession in which more

    based on 4 ratings

  • So, You Think You're Not A Pharisee?

    Contributed by Dan Funk on Aug 28, 2014

    Christ directed the Parable of the Pharisee and the Publican Praying in the Temple to those who trusted in their own righteousness. We are more prone to trust in our own righteousness than we might think. This self-trust can keep us from being merciful.

    Over the years, we have all heard preachers address the parable of the Pharisee and the Publican praying in the Temple. “The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast more

  • "Headed For A Fall" A Message For Kids

    Contributed by David Henderson on May 16, 2016

    Jesus taught his disciples that whenever people boast and brag about the great things that they do, they are headed for a fall!

    Headed for A fall Scripture: For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. Luke 18:14b (NIV) Humility is not thinking less of yourself. It is thinking of yourself less. Every child at some time in their life has played with building blocks. One more

  • Generous With Our Prayers Series

    Contributed by Lynn Malone on Jul 25, 2017
    based on 1 rating

    Discipleship and Stewardship are so closely related as to be indistinguishable. We are called to be as generous with our prayers as with our money or service.

    A young man went into a drugstore to buy 3 boxes of chocolate: small, medium, and large. When the pharmacist asked him about the three boxes, he said, “Well, I am going over to my new girlfriend's house tonight for supper. Then, we are going out for the evening. If she only lets me hold her hand, more

    The Eleventh Sunday after Trinity THE COLLECT - God's power is shown in mercy and pity O God, you declare your almighty power most chiefly in showing mercy and pity: mercifully grant to us such a measure of your grace, that we, running the way of your commandments, may receive your gracious more

  • Jesus Blesses Children; Raises Objections Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Dec 6, 2017

    It was customary in Jesus’ day for children to be brought to rabbis and elders for their blessing, and on this occasion some brought young children for Jesus to touch and bless. The disciples appeared to be rude and inconsiderate, especially in . . . .

    Perea Jesus Blesses Children; Raises Objections (Ps. 131:12) Matthew 19:13-15, Mark 10:13-16, Luke 18:15-17 13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. It was customary in Jesus’ day for children to more

    Luke 18:9-14 "Be Real" So, who are you, really? I'm not talking about the person who appears to have everything perfectly under control, or the persona who has been created, layer-by-layer, through the painful, embarrassing or shameful experiences of life... ...the protective shield more
